Separately we Pursue the same goal, yearning Together we get strong


I drove down another path today, in another car, dreaming other dreams The dust behind did not chase my car, no, it watched me move on, away from those old thoughts I drove in the same city, with the same passenger, but it was new, and I was just a bit giddy with the newness … More Rebirth
